Alpha Challengers are excited to launch the Championing Diversity Series with a topical discussion on Diversity After Lockdown?

Our agenda is an important one to all who care about our future and the future of the industry. After years of sometimes painfully slow erosion of myths surrounding people’s ability to work from home, we now have a once in a lifetime opportunity to define a new, new normal, that takes the whole organisation with us. 

An efficient, lower cost, effective and compliant way of working that is inclusive and more adept at embracing diversity.

Firms that take the initiative, adapt, and define a new, new normal will be able to retain and attract the best and more diverse talent. Firms embracing the new, new normal will be a more attractive place for Millennials, Generation X and Women leading to more diverse teams.

When the lockdown is over let’s not rush back to the old – let’s make a new, new normal.

Discussion Points:

  1. Is this the biggest opportunity for change in our lifetimes?
  2. What are you and your colleagues finding enjoyable and rewarding about your current working environment??
  3. What challenges are you and your colleagues facing?
  4. Have any myths been busted?
  5. Is there a  business case for change?
